OGDEN -- A snowstorm that will last into today hit the Top of Utah on Tuesday evening.
After 4 p.m., as the cold front moved into the state, Utah Highway Patrol responded to six crashes in Box Elder County, three of which resulted in nonserious injuries, said Cpl. Todd Johnson.
Troopers reported only one crash in Weber County, in which no one was hurt, he said.
Crash totals were not immediately available for Davis County, as starting at 8:14 p.m. dispatchers were busy with a fatal accident on southbound Interstate 15.
Two people died after their northbound passenger car drove into the southbound lanes, where it was broadsided by a semitruck, according to UHP.
It was not immediately clear whether the snowy conditions played into the crash, although it was snowing in the area.
The two crash victims were not identified Tuesday by the UHP spokesman.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service predicted the storm would bring 2 to 5 inches of snow to accumulate across the northern Wasatch front, and 4 to 10 inches in the mountains.
Snowfall is expected to linger into today and will likely affect the morning commute, according to the NWS.
The snow is expected to diminish by the end of the day before warm, drier weather returns Thursday.
Besides snow, the cold front brought blustery weather. Winds blew through the Top of Utah at 20 to 30 mph, gusting as high as 39 mph, according to weather condition readings from Ogden-Hinckley Airport and Hill Air Force Base.
The risk of avalanches in the Ogden area remains considerable into today, particularly on slopes approaching 35 degrees or steeper, according to the Utah Avalanche Center.
Rocky Mountain Power had not reported any large-scale power outages in the Top of Utah as of 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
